COPENHAGEN — Canada will be without the services of Jaden Schwartz when they take on Switzerland in the semifinals of the world hockey championship on Saturday.

The St. Louis Blues forward will miss the remainder of the tournament with an upper-body injury, Hockey Canada announced Friday.

Schwartz, 25, has posted four assists in eight games.

The injury will not affect his availability for the Blues' training camp in September. The native of Wilcox, Sask., had 59 points in 62 games for St. Louis this season.

Canada advanced to the semis of the tournament with a 5-4 overtime win over Russia on Thursday.
